There were also amusing touches, or what the Romans considered amusing. A jeweler who had sold some fake stones was sentenced to the arena. The wretched man was driven into the arena and a lion’s cage rolled out before him. While the jeweler fell on his knees and prayed for mercy, the door of the cage was pulled back — and out walked a chicken. The jeweler fainted from shock while the emperor had the heralds announce: “As the man practiced deceit, he has now had it practiced on him.” The jeweler was allowed to leave the arena alive. (This actually happened during the reign of the Emperor Gallienus in 250 A.D..)

Pictured: The Pretty Things.

The urgency in these mid-sixties songs is history itself: the need for this sound to exist right at that point. Groups like Them, Pretty Things, Who, Kinks were already the second generation of rock, but so caught up were they in the hurtle of the sixties, so fanatically committed to their second-hand sound, that they blast right through the inauthenticity and imposture. By the seventies and the third generation, a fatal layer of distance and detachment intervenes. Perhaps in [David Bowie’s] Pinups there is a submerged undercurrent of aggression towards ancestors who were somehow able to overcome their unrealness.

Louis Jordan was criticized by some for catering to his white audiences. In an interview published in the English magazine Blues Unlimited a few years ago, Jordan admitted that he had at times made a conscious effort to render his performances accept able to “the white crackers.” Yet his spirit of whorish compromise was ahead of his time, too, in a way. Looking back now, it’s easy to see that real rock ‘n’ roll has always been anti-purity, and that Louis Jordan was no more an Uncle Tom than Jimi Hendrix or Michael Jackson. He was a snazzier dresser than either of them, to boot.

In 1946 Astor Pictures released a musical called Beware. It centered on the Louis Jordan hit of the same name and year. The purported star of the film was Milton Woods (described as “the colored Basil Rathbone”), but the picture belongs to Louis Jordan and his band, who, in one wild and eerie scene, emerge galloping on horseback over the range – with glistening saxophones slung over their sharkskin shoulders. What finer way to be remembered?

Pictured: The Velvet Underground.

On the surface everything looked all right. Tom Mancuso reviewing a Max’s performance described Lou Reed arriving at the club one evening: “Before the first set begins, around eleven thirty, Lou Reed carries in his guitar, checks its tuning, takes off his nylon windbreaker, and then talks to people. He wears tennis shoes and the way he walks, even the way he talks, has an athletic composure, a reserved confidence. Lou Reed has ‘always wanted to play in a rock’n’roll band’. He does, and he describes what he does as ‘like meeting people’. If someone sings one of his songs, ‘it’s like humming your name’. Another way in which he describes what he enjoys about music compares it to sports: ‘It’s the playing that’s nice.’ Modest ambitions, pleasures, and metaphors are unexpected from a rock’n’roll star. ‘I’m not a star,’ he says.”

Pictured: Dennis “Blackbeard” Bovell.

Probably UK reggae’s most innovative and celebrated son, Dennis [Bovell] can look back on a three-decade international recording, writing, deejaying, playing and production history that stretches back through Matumbi, the Dub Band, Blackbeard, Sufferer HiFi, 4th Street Orchestra, the Lovers’ Rock label, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Alpha Blondy and, more recently, the Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra. Matumbi put on one of the best live shows in Britain – dubwise or otherwise; for a long time his groups were the first choice to back visiting Jamaican singers; his projects used to saturate the UK reggae charts and make regular riddim raids into the pop Top 40; while his way with the bass-line was employed by a range of pop acts from Bananarama to Captain Sensible to the Slits. For years, back in the 1970s, Dennis Bovell was the hub at the centre of British reggae’s wheel: very little of any worth happened that didn’t have his fingerprints on it somewhere.

Pictured: Sylvia Robinson.

As far as Sylvia Robinson was concerned, all the track needed was for Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five to lay down the vocals, only for Flash to protest the song was “way too dark, way too edgy, and way too much of a downer.” Melle Mel didn’t share Flash’s concerns, however, and offered Fletcher additional lyrics he had written for Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five’s “Super Rappin’ No. 2” that told the story of a kid who grew up in poverty and died young in prison. Flash’s dismay increased when Robinson outlined her intention to have Mel deliver the lyrics solo. “This is what I was afraid of,” recalls the dj in his autobiography. “This is how things fall apart. This isn’t about Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. This isn’t everybody shining at the same time. This isn’t about teamwork. This isn’t about taking five mcs and making ’em sound like one, which has been our thing from the very beginning. This is about Mel. This is about Sylvia. This is about money.” The dj tried to turn the situation around by having the Furious Five deliver the song, only for Robinson to reject everything save for Flash’s name, turning to Mel to deliver the lyrics as a solo rap. “All the rappers, including us, were scared to do something serious,” Mel told Steven Hager. “Sylvia Robinson is the only one who believed in ‘The Message.’ She told us it would be a big song for us.”

Pictured: The Rolling Stones.

In four months, Keith would appear in court for his drug trial, and some remnant of the feeling he had now would come back to him then. He would tell the court what he thought of five policemen invading his house, peering into his privacy. He would wear one of Anita’s scarves around his neck. During the recesses, he would order expensive lunches from his cell and get drunk on wine. When they asked him about the naked girl in the upstairs bedroom, he would say that he was not an old man and did not share their petty moral outrage, that the girl had just been taking a nap and that in any case she was his friend. When it was over, he would emerge from the trial transformed, a swaggering outlaw figure, no longer a lone misfit, no longer the shy dreamer who had been preyed upon at school by older boys who called him a faggot and a girl. He didn’t know that the next night the police would raid Brian’s flat, the flat in Earl’s Court he had shared with Anita, and frame him for possession of cocaine. When he thought of Brian now — leaving Brian by himself in the hotel — he couldn’t picture Brian himself, only the empty room.

The only distinctive feature of Django [Reinhardt]’s room was the vast amount of light that flooded in. The window opened on to a long balcony from which you could see the greyish roofs of lower Montmartre, whose red chimneys cut into the capital’s smoky horizon like the battlements of some ancient castle. Behind the screen, where a kitchen of sorts had been rigged up, the monkey spent the better part of each day unearthing the remains of meals. What trouble this monkey caused! Django would never agree to part with it despite the complaints of the hotel manager. One day it would be eating soap, the next floorcloth! ‘When are you going to get rid of that menagerie of yours?’ the boss would ask him threateningly, but Django replied only by shrugging his shoulders, though he might mumble ‘What a peasant!’ between his teeth. And when he left the hotel, as though to avenge himself, he omitted to pay the money he owed. However, when the boss had regained his temper he told his customers: ‘Ah! If you knew what a state they left that room in! But I’m proud to have put up that famous gipsy who plays the guitar so well!’

— Charles Delaunay, Django Reinhardt.

I believe that this is why this most delicately exquisite of intoxicants, this least stupefying of drugs—less so even than marijuana—is nevertheless so addictive. How could the taste of paradise be otherwise? Yes, of course, so much better it would be to possess that taste purely through understanding and living. But as wretched a thing as terminal opium addiction might be, it is no more wretched than addictions of more familiar and acceptable sorts. Opium addicts can live to fine old ages, and can an addiction to paradise, artificial as it may be, be considered more ignoble than an addiction to television, movies, or the other lower artificialities of a world so vacant as to be aware of and conversant in the pseudo-science of serotonin but not of or in the wisdom of Thomas, a world so vacant as to be enamored of the false connoisseurship of rancid grape juice but not the true connoisseurship of something such as opium, let alone of life?

— Nick Tosches, The Last Opium Den.

“Always own your tools,” he’d say. “Your tools and your house. That way they cain’t take it away from ya. Don’t live on no paycheck and don’t never ask the man for a thing. You got what he want right here in yo’ hands.” He’d hold up a chisel or a pile of freshly smithed square nails. “That way you gonna be a man. A’cause that’s what a man is—it’s what he could do. You-all be thinkin’ that bein’ a man got somethin’ to do wit’ women, but that ain’t true. Woman compliment a man but he got to have his own if he wanna be wit’ her. Shit! She wanna big dick what she need t’do is t’get her a horse.”
